Is it possible to have an inside self—a private person inside our public selves that no one else gets to know?

With so many people chatting about every little thing they do and posting images of their lives as they are happening, do we really think we can keep anything to ourselves?

I remember the time when we were telling kids to use their “inside voices” even when outside; but, really, is that a concept that died with the 80’s?  If everything is out there for all to see (and frankly, just assuming people want to know what your cat looks like in the sun while sleeping, or what you look like in your underwear for that matter…) aren’t we fast turning into a nation of narcissists?

The K of D, an urban legend stars Renata Friedman as more than a dozen characters in a phenomenal and haunting performance that makes you wonder just which facets of your life and self are private and which ones are public. The play will make its regional premiere at Illusion Theater on October 8. For more information, visit Illusion Theater’s website or The K of D, an urban legend.
